Alan Cumming will appear in the upcoming season of Doctor Who as King James I, the actor said, sharing his excitement about the role and about taking part in such a great sci-fi TV project. The monarch was known as King James VI of Scotland, and was crowned in 1567. In 1603 he was also crowned as King of England and Ireland, ruling as James I until his death in 1625. Cumming likes such a character, saying King James was a nice man, “kind of dandy, foppy coward who comes alright in the end”. It was rumored that that the king had same-sex love affairs but Cumming is not say whether it will be shown in Doctor Who. During his rule, King James handed a string of honours to his rumoured lover George Villiers, who he named a Knight, an Earl, and later Duke of Buckingham. Plenty of evidence exists to support a relationship between the King and Villiers, though scientists preferred to keep it out of records
